Our Story

Meet the Founder:

cropped-orderupmk.jpegMy name is MK LaVallee, and I have had a passion for all things ‘order’ since before I can remember. I have years of professional organization experience and a background in social work with Understanding and Treating Hoarding Disorder training.  My family always jokes about how I was highly sought after as a babysitter and friend when I was younger because any house I went to left more organized than when I arrived. Helping people is my passion, and what lead to me getting a master degree in social work, however, I always come back to helping people in the area of organization!

I started my professional organizing business, OrderUp Design, in May of 2018 when I moved back to Atlanta, Georgia after finishing my Master degree.  At first, I thought it was purely a dream job and would be part-time until I found more permanent work, however, I found that many people need help in the area of organization! As things picked up, I decided to make it a full time job and I have been chasing my dream of being a small business owner and professional organizer ever since. I want to thank all of my clients and future clients! Here is to “enhancing your life through organization.”

Meet the Team: 

IMG_0571 My go to girl! Anne Garrard was the first person I trusted to join the OrderUp Design team and we are better for having her! Anne is a professional Organizer with an eye for design!

Hi, my name is Anne Miller Garrard! I joined the OrderUp Design team as a professional organizer in December of 2019. My background includes textiles, design, and education for over 20 years. But, after years in other industries, I have decided to pursue my dreams of being a professional organizer.  As a mother, and former teacher, I know how chaotic life can be dealing with kids and am excited to use my skills to help other families mainstream their crazy lives and get back to the basics of doing what they love most. I truly believe when you live with less, you are able to enjoy your home, and the people who live in it, without constantly feeling like there are a million task to do at any given moment.   I am so excited to be part of the OrderUp Design team as a professional organizer, and cannot wait to help all future clients!

The team wouldn’t be complete with Lyn LaVallee! We swear she is the best handy woman around (but we may be bias because she is MK’s mom!) Lyn comes on jobs to help build custom pieces and on closet install days.

“Hey, I am Lyn LaVallee, also known on jobs as “mom”. I have always had an eye for fixing anything broken and have enjoyed helping the OrderUp Design team over the last two years. When I’m not helping out the professional organizing team, you can catch me at the vet cleaning dog teeth. My background is in dental hygiene, which makes me very detail oriented!

Feel free to email orderupdesign@gmail.com or use the reach out tab and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
